There are enough sad people in the world, I prefer to be happy. Everyway I think who put the heart to sideways has a modified a little bit the message that you wanted to send. Perhaps if you had looked for a way to position, however, the heart to the center, it would been better. But it's only a my opinion.
You don't understand me?? Perhaps because my English is awful. I try to explain me, but first an explanation: the heart is not found to the center of the breast. Says this, when I have seen your image I have thought that you wanted to communicate as, for a true player, the own interiority, or soul if you prefer, ended with to melt himself, or to confuse himself, with the game. If this were the idea that you wanted to communicate, put the heart so closely to the joypad, it communicate the idea that the heart, of a true player is an "accessory" of the own joypad. Maybe it was really the idea that you wanted to communicate, but the impression that I have it's different. In this case, if I would realized the image, I would drawn the thread as a kind of labyrinth that ended with the heart. Almost as the map of a videogame. The position of the heart about the center would helped me to draw a more complex pathway. This is all, perhaps I wrong but this has been my impression.
P.S. Sorry my english it's very, very awful Sometimes also me don't understanding myself.
